A Geek Daddy Thanksgiving Giveaway: Win a FREE BIRDS Movie Prize Pack

When I first saw the trailers for the movie Free Birds I rolled my eyes and thought this Turkey-based Thanksgiving gimmick of a movie wasn't going to be very good.  After watching the movie my impression changed as I found it to be a humorous and fun family friendly adventure movie that is great addition to a Thanksgiving weekend's activities.  The adventures of two turkeys who use a secret government time machine to travel back to 1621 in an attempt to sway the Pilgrims to enjoy pizza at the first Thanksgiving dinner thus saving generations of turkeys from a fate of being placed on the dinner table as the main course every fourth Thursday in November.  This animated movie should join A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and Planes, Trains &  Automobiles as must see viewing during this holiday.

You can find Free Birds to bring home to watch by shopping at Walmart for its exclusive DVD / plush toy combo that has just been released for the holidays this year.  As a Thanksgiving Treat for our A GEEK DADDY blog readers, we are also giving away a Free Birds DVD / Plush Toy Prize Pack to one lucky individual.  For a chance to win this  movie prize pack you must be a US or Canadian resident over 18 years old and submit one or all of the following entry methods to earn up to 3 entries prior to 11:59 pm EST on Sunday November 30, 2014:

  1. The funniest Thanksgiving moment was the first time I brought my then fiancée home to meet my family for Thanksgiving. He was dismayed that "everyone was yelling at each other." I have a huge family. We weren't yelling. That's how we communicate. You have to yell to be heard. But the looks on his face were priceless.

  2. When I was a kid, my mom thought that a smoked turkey meant it was fully cooked and all she had to do was warm it... Not the case. It wasn't funny at the time, but we laugh about it now.

  3. My grandpa accidentally spilled pie on the floor and the dog ate it all!

  4. Free Birds is a family movie.Plus, the fact that they are trying to save their race via time machine makes it exciting. Kids and adults will enjoy it.
